Beyond Illusion: Leading from Reality

“For the revelation [vision] awaits an appointed time ,it speaks [as to kindle a fire] of the end [the Karios moment]. Though it linger, wait for it.it will certainly come and will not delay.” Hab. 2:3

Look at the Nehemiah story.  Those guys doing the spiritual mapping of Jerusalem were reporting to Nehemiah that there was no vision, no passion, no security, no leadership and that those chosen people there were in disgrace. Is that a picture of America today? So here this one man goes in and turns that completely around in 52 days. Really? Remember this “one man” first spent four months in prayer and fasting. For what was Nehemiah praying? There is no wall mentioned in that first chapter of Nehemiah. He wasn’t praying for a wall. For what was he praying?

The Search for Leadership

In 2009 I authored a book Beyond Illusion: Leading from Reality about leadership. I was really concerned about leadership in America, which seemed to be failing wherever you looked. Unfortunately, since then, it has only gotten worse.

To quote Chuck Colson (a leader himself), “America is committing suicide”.

get beyond illusionSo as we enter election time, we are promoting this book again. Here is the surprise: This isn’t a political book. The American political parties aren’t mentioned in the book, neither are any specific political names. The “thread” story here is that of Nehemiah in the Bible. At that time Israel was without vision, passion, or security.

Like America today. (PS – if you think America is secure think again. It reminds me of the Toynbee quote in which he said 21 of the 22 great civilizations were destroyed from within, not from without. During just the last few weeks it has been a theater shooting Aurora (Colorado), a massacre in Wisconsin, a shooting at the conservative think tank Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, and then a shooting at the A & M University in the news. And I can also name decisions that show moral and ethical failure by our so-called “leaders”. In contrast, Nehemiah led the Israelites through a major spiritual, physical, and emotional awakening in only 52 days. And he was constantly fighting enemies both within and without.

In this book you will see what Nehemiah did to lead that transformation. You will also meet other Biblical leaders as well as some contemporary leaders. You will also read about several (that’s right, several) spiritual awakenings that have happened in America. You will see what will it take for an awakening to happen again.
